Hide In The Night

The sky is white as the sun goes down
We squint and we stare to the west
To see it go and dark begin
The night will take the shining place

Though we've seen it all a million times
We still wonder when it all will end
What disaster waits for us?
What will nature send?

We still hide in the night
Since we had our caves we have done it all the same
We hide inside and wait for light
Since we know it will come in the dark of night
It always comes in the night

The sky is white as the sun comes up
And blinds us to the east
We give thanks to our Gods or just plain luck
And we wipe our brow or give our thanks
Offer up the break of bread and bend our knees and pray

But we hide in the night as we've always done
Since we lived in caves we have done the same
We hide inside and wait for day
To come rolling round again
Rolling round again
